This study links public sector efficiency to firm growth via several microeconomic channels. The results show that greater
public administration efficiency induces higher rates of fast growing firms. Especially corruption and ineffective justice
systems were identified as the factors that most impede firms' growth. In addition, public service provision that relies on
fees rather than on taxes was associated with higher efficiency.
